Walsh hits right chords with cultural leaders

The president of Berklee College of Music wants a Boston version of South By Southwest, the sprawling music festival that draws thousands of people to Austin, Texas. A Boston University film professor wishes City Hall would answer phone calls from students applying for shooting permits. The Museum of Fine Arts director just wants to meet for coffee. He’s fine with Dunkin Donuts.

Martin J. Walsh won’t take office as Boston’s mayor until Jan. 6, but cultural leaders are eager to get started on a vision he outlined during the campaign, one in which “artists will have a true partner and advocate in City Hall.”
